CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES
CHILDREN’S PHOTO CONTEST
“Through the Lens: California in your backyard”
The California Academy of Sciences is pleased to announce the launch of a photo contest for youth ages 8-12. The objective: to capture the theme “California in your backyard” on film, reflecting the Academy’s mission to explore, explain and protect the natural world.
The job of Academy researchers is to get up close and document what they observe in nature – something the Academy has been doing for 155 years. This contest is a chance for children to put on the hat of a researcher, get curious, and explore through the lens of a camera.
It is up to each young photographer to decide how they want to convey California in their backyard and the Academy’s mission – to explore, explain and protect the natural world. All photographers entering the contest are encouraged to have lots of fun and be as creative as possible!
The deadline to submit photographs is May 26, 2008 and the winning photographers will have their work displayed in the museum and win a cash prize. Contest rules and submission instructions can be found at www.calacademy.org.
